    At what frame rate and res is this? did you do anything in post for stabilization? It is less shaky than the footage i saw before, but the mount was placed on the front tags not the rear. I feel the rear seems more stable. however, every car is different. the best spot to avoid vibration would be to mount it on the most stable part of the car frame. But in reference to the tag mount / angle, perhaps some cushioning layer or padding such as 3m double tape between the mount and the body panel will help absorb some noise.

    She is a 7, but truth be told, this is one of those that looks way better in real life. Ok enough I have to get to work.

    Sure but you can dial back the turbos for the street. The power delivery and throttle response is better with the turbos, period. I'll trade the linear torque for that. I'm going to but I'll need to do another motor build.

    A clutch rated to 550 will do you no good as well ;) For what's on the market right now the spec 3+ seems like the best option for a ST or even maxed out twins. OP your clutches need to be able to hold the max stock frames can for a stage 1 upgrade so it has to be able to handle at least 550lbs all day every day. This would be an upgrade for people not ever planning on a ST but want to be able to handle whatever the stock frames can throw at them. The next would be something that can handle moderate ST so something around the spec 3+ or 650-700 tq. Finally one to handle a 1000whp build. So higher than the spec stg 5. just my opinion, develop what you want

    Thanks for the insight. I'm PUMPED for Revis and our D in general. As much as I like Gronk I almost feel like they should really limit his playing until the playoffs. I mean that is where we need him in beast mode. We'll get to the playoffs without him just fine. I know it will not happen and that is not how the game is played...but if he gets injured one more time he's going to get labeled as an injury prone player...more so than he already is. Thompkins I'm excited about. Hopefully he continues to get better and shows it on the field as you said.

    Land Rover let it slip that their upcoming Range Rover Sport SVR lapped the Nurburgring in 8 minutes and 14 seconds. You may remember that last month the hotter Range Rover was spotted testing on the 'Ring and Land Rover certainly appeared serious about performance. Well, they are very serious as the 8 minute and 14 second laptime makes the Rover Rover Sport SVR the quickest production SUV to ever lap the Nurburgring. The 8 minute and 14 second time beats the rumored Macan Turbo 8 minute and 15 second laptime. It also puts it ahead of the BMW 1M, first generation Honda NSX, and a second off the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG. Absolutely incredible performance from the SUV.

    My thoughts exactly. I'm going to (obviously) need a clutch when I choose which single I'm going with, but a clutch rated to 400 ftlb won't do me any good. If you can match a Spec stage 2+ or 3 and be cheaper, I'd give you a try for sure.

    What power levels are the clutches being designed around? All long as they hold as much as the spec(or more) at less cost you should have plenty of buyers I would imagine

    This is the sports car that apparently has Lamborghini in a tizzy as its architecture will likely be used for the Huracan successor. The new car is internally dubbed the 988 during development as the Porsche marketing gurus figure out what to call it. Autocar states the car will use a flat-8 engine although that seems to be a guess. PorscheBoost has heard rumors the 4.6 liter V8 used in the 918 Spyder may be borrowed for this car. At this point nobody really knows as plenty of internal squabbling is taking place. Turbocharged power may be employed as well but a target of over 600 horses at this point is the goal. This all may change as the architecture is not even expected until 2017. That brings us to the main point which is that this new architecture will be used for all future Porsche sports car. That means mid-engine cars such as the Boxster and Cayman as well as for the rear engine layout of the 911. This does not sit well with Lamborghini as they are not interested in four-cylinder power for the Boxster and Cayman but a V10 for their Huracan successor. Porsche wants to keep costs low with flexibility by using the same platform for every sports car. It makes sense on paper but it will have to be highly modular to accommodate so many different engines and designs. The 911 and the Boxster sharing the same platform somehow? If anyone can pull it off it would be Porsche. Source

    Meh, I have seen worse and see worse on the daily. The facebook bmw groups, especially the 335/n54 ones, are full of trolls and idiots spouting wrong information. Like that Vincent Carbone guy or whatever his name is trolling constantly. Like the forums aren't a good enough place to bicker and argue so they need facebook too? That car could sport those eyelashes though...

    So it took me awhile to finally write this review up, but I do have a solid amount of miles on the LSD and lockdown kit at this point which is a good thing. I ordered the LSD through Steven @MFactory. We corresponded mostly through email, and he was always very responsive...even when traveling out of country. I did their core exchange program, and picked up a 3.46 LSD for my 6MT car, as I heard nothing but good things about the final drive change. After they received my payment, they began reconditioning a large housing bolted pumpkin they had there and prepping it for the LSD. Once the oil seals arrived, it only took them a day to have it prepped and ready. One of the pics attached below so it in its prepped state. Shipping was fast as well, and it was at my door a few days later. It was super clean, and the pumpkin was freshly coated black :) I had Rick@Defiv fit me in his busy schedule for an install, and decided to get the lockdown kit done at the same time. Rick and I had the whole diff swap + lockdown install process done in about 4hrs, including pizza and drink breaks. Not bad at all. We took it out on the road for a quick spin to verify everything was solid, then I was on my way. Thanks again Rick! I've been driving on it for about 800 miles now over the past month or so, and I love how it has transformed the car. The LSD still adds forward thrust to the car even while spinning in 1st and 2nd. Previously, my car would get very unpredictable, and start to kick out the rear in either direction. Now it is planted and firm, just pushing you forward. Traction is greatly improved. It's also great to be able to rotate the car easily with the gas pedal going around turns and you can literally "feel" the LSD working. The 3.46 final drive + my worn tires aren't doing me any favors currently, but I will be switching to some r-comp semi slicks very soon, and going wider. As for the lockdown kit, it is as great as advertised! Absolutely no wheel hop on the street. I did experience a tiny tiny bit my first pass at the strip after the installs, but as soon as I lowered my tire pressure a bit it was completely gone. This can be further adjusted if I had coilovers too, but I am on stock 135i suspension. For the first 400 miles or so, I'd say there was ZERO increase in NVH. After everything broke in, I did notice a very tiny increase in NVH. I can hear a slight whine / resonance between 50-60mph and sometimes in the lower rpm, but only with the windows up. I have catless downpipes, and a custom single 3" catless midpipe, but am running the stock axle back so my car is super quiet cruising around. Anyone with a louder exhaust will not hear a thing. Regardless, it is a "cool" sound. BC Racecar. Running the Cobb Stg 2+ basemap at the strip w/ the LSD and lockdown kit, I was running consistent 12.6 @ 113-114mph all night. I couldn't get lower than a 2.0 60', but that is my tires fault. IAT's per my logs were very high too (105*+), since it was a warm night and. I fully expect to hit 12.1 - 12.2 simply with better tires. Then a PTF pro-tune to get me into the 11's on stock turbo, 6mt, 93oct. I highly recommend that anyone making power get an LSD. You don't really know what you're missing out on until you experience it. mFactory was great to deal with and their product performs extremely well. Same goes for the defiv lockdown kit. Together, it's a killer combo. See pics below!
